Are these temperatures normal at 0.2% CPU usage?

I have taken a screenshot of SpeedFan while it says my CPU usage is at 0.2%.

Are these temperatures normal? I am overclocking the Q6600 to 2.9.

How much will it shorten the CPU life by if its too hot?

  1. Try CoreTemp. BTW what HSF are you using?
  2. 56 at idle is a bit on the warm side. Most try to aim for 60 degrees at load.
  3. yeah
  4. It won't shorten the lifespan. CPUs last much longer than they are usually used.
